  1. Dual Plane 3D Compton Scattering Imager with Pixelated CZT Detectors for 1-10MeV Gamma Ray

    SBC: H3D            Topic: None

    Phase I has proven that the current setup achieves better than 8mm spatial resolution for 2.2MeV prompt gammas. However, 1mm spatial resolution presents a significant challenge for the current setup due in part to limited timing resolution and count rate. A new analog ASIC will be developed to replace the current analog ASIC that will have better timing resolution and deliver higher count rates. I ...

  2. Advanced Instrumentation for Non-Nulling Stack Velocity Testing

    SBC: AIRFLOW SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: None

    Industrial facilities, manufacturing plants, and electric power plants that burn fossil fuels exhaust the combustion products to atmosphere through their smokestacks. Stack pollutant emissions are quantified using manual testing methods developed in the 1960s, which are prone to error if non-axial flow exists in a stack.Recently, NIST has been working on an improved technique of performing 3D flow ...

  4. An Augmented Reality Sandbox for use in Early Elementary STEM Instruction

    SBC: Parametric Studio, Inc.            Topic: 91990019R0011

    The team will develop a prototype of an augmented reality (AR) sandbox with foundational learning experiences in engineering and computer science for students in kindergarten to grade 2. The prototype will embed puzzle challenges within the AR interface to facilitate experiences that will mirror traditional real-world play-building activities. At the end of Phase I, in a pilot study in three class ...

  5. Combined Extinction/Fluorescence Absorption Diagnostics for Sprays

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 9030163R

    This Phase II project will continue the prototype development of a pharmaceutical spray quality audit system. The spray quality audit system will estimate the planar mass distribution, mass flux, and drop size of pharmaceutical sprays that are used in functional coating applications and inhalers. A prototype tomography system will be designed and fabricated and evaluated using various fluorophore.

  6. Large-Area, High-Uniformity Photodiodes for Infrared Trap Detectors

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: 9020168R

    methyst Research Inc. will design, fabricate and test a high uniformity, large area, low noise infrared trap-detector detector for the 1- 4.5 μm wavelength range. This state of the art detector will have a large area (e.g., 1-1.8 cm diameter active area) with a spatial variability of internal quantum efficiency of less than 0.1 % between 1 μm and 4.5 μm. In addition, the internal quantum effici ...

  8. The Iowa Assessment of Skills and Knowledge for Automatic Word Recognition and Decoding (iASK)

    SBC: Foundations In Learning, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The project team is developing a prototype of an online word recognition assessment program for middle school students who are struggling readers. The assessment will address a variety of literacy skills including decoding, fluency, and word recognition. The product will generate formative assessment profiles of individual students for teachers to provide targeted instruction. In the Phase I pilot ...

  10. Decision Support Tools for Sustainable Manufacturing

    SBC: BIMCON Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this proposal is to establish the feasibility of developing an integrated decision support tool that transforms the current time-consuming and reactive (post-design) sustainability assessment into a real-time, proactive approach available in the early phases of product design. This tool, called Sustainability Integrated into Early Design (SIED), will define and capture lifecycle-w ...
